Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Your body requires water , it is crucial for our body's health and has no fat. It is also good in that it fills the drinker's belly and decreases feelings of emptiness. The recommended portions physicians claim that we should aim to drink as much as six cups of water every 24 hours.
Some lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Use reduced carbohydrate chocolate bars for chocolate muffins.
If you have taken the time to convert your most popular chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soya flour, you really shouldn't add in those high carbohydrate chocolate chips. Break up a reduced carbohydrate chocolate bar into tiny pieces and use that in its place.
* Make low carb bread crumbs for breaded foods.
Whilst you can buy reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs, you can make them at home by simply using low carb bread. All you have to do is simply toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in the oven on a cookie sheet. Once it is quite hard and crispy, grind it up in your food processor or blender. Keep in an airtight jar or container.
